Member RID numbers change for newly eligible members
As the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA)
moves to a new eligibility system, a new numbering sequence is
being used for member identification numbers (RIDs). Beginning July
17, 2016, RIDs issued to newly eligible members include a "120"
prefix rather than a "100" prefix. New RIDs continue to follow the
same 12-digit format of 12xxxxxxxx99. All previously assigned "100"
RIDs remain intact. Presumptive Eligibility RIDs are also
The change in RIDs is a preliminary step in the process of
replacing the State's current eligibility system, Indiana
Client Eligibility System (ICES), with the new Indiana
Eligibility Determination Services System (IEDSS). The
eligibility system is used by the FSSA's Division of Family
Resources (DFR) to assist with the Indiana Health Coverage Programs
(IHCP) member application and eligibility determination processes.
Beginning March 1, 2017, IEDSS will be implemented incrementally,
by region, over the course of a year's time. Watch future IHCP
publications for additional information about this transition.
